Tongerlongeter (19)

They had a perfect horror

Of everything connected with religious instruction

Non-committal

God made

Everything

Robinson heard him say

Language not understood

On Sundays they appeared at ‘divine service’

Non-committal

God made

Everything

Tongue may have been subversive

Enduring

Remnant

“Behind him was the unbeaten remnant of one of history’s most enduring people.”

(see Reynolds & Clements, Tongerlongeter)
